I have changed the menu for today. I needed curry sauce, which I need to get. However, it is pouring with rain, and things are a bit too lively with all those electrical storms. I do NOT cycle in a thunderstorm, thank you. Looking at the weather radar, a procession of heavy rain- and thunderstorms is marching up the Rhine valley out of Germany. When those hit the high ground behind Arnhem, all hell breaks loose.

You get scenes like these:

Good idea not to cycle in the thunderstorms.  Looks like some heavy down pour you have there.

Wow.  That's why it's called a 'sheet' of rain!

That looks like western Washington rain.  Are you sure you're really in Holland?   Linda in WA

That is heavy rain.!!!!!
I'm glad to say we've had a very warm day today after quite a few days of rain.
What did you cook instead.??

We had a rain like that the other night.  It rained so hard on my mobile home roof, I couldn't hear the TV across the living room probably only 6-8 feet away!~
